cellular respiration

the process by which cells produce energy from carbohydrates; atmospheric oxygen combines with glucose to form water and carbon dioxide

photosynthesis

the process by which plants, algae, and some bacteria use sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water to produce carbohydrates and oxygen

natural selection

the process by which individuals that are better adapted to their environment survive and reproduce more successfully than less well adapted individuals do; a theory to explain the mechanism of evolution

adaption

the process of becoming adapted to an environment; an anatomical, physiological, or behavioral change that improves a population's ability to survive

mutation

a change in the nucleotide-base sequence of a gene or DNA molecule

carbohydrates

any organic compound that is made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen and that provides nutrients to the cell of living things

protein

an organic compound that is made of one or more chains of amino acids and that is a principal component of all cells

decomposer

an organism that feeds by breaking down organic matter from dead organisms; examples include bacteria and fungi

symbiotic relationships (symbiosis)

a relationship in which two different organisms live in close association with each other

commensalism

a relationship between two organisms in which one organism benefits and the other is unaffected

parasitism

a relationship between two species in which one species, the parasite, benefits from the other species, the host, which is harmed

prey

an organism that is killed and eaten by another organism

predator

an organism that eats all or part of another organism

control group

in an experiment, a group that serves as a standard of comparison with another group to which the control group is identical except for one factor

dependent variable

in an experiment, the factor that changes as a result of manipulation of one or more other factors (the independent variables)

ecological succession

a gradual process of change and replacement in a community

hypothesis

a testable idea or explanation that leads to scientific investigation (ReAlLy ImPoRtAnT)

genotype vs. phenotype

the entire genetic makeup of an organism; also the combination of genes for one or more specific traits
vs.
an organism's appearance or other detectable characteristic that results from the organism's genotype and the environment

carnivore

an organism that eats animals

herbivore

an organism that eats only plants

omnivore

an organism that eats plants and animals

autotroph

an organism that produces its own nutrients from inorganic substances or from the environment instead of consuming other organisms

meiosis

a process in cell division during which the number of chromosomes decreases to half the original number by two divisions of the nucleus, which results in the production of sex cells (gametes or spores)

mutualism

a relationship between two species in which both species benefit
